    The Ferragamo production appears to be divided into three grades, the ubiquitous Ferragamos seen in every department store worldwide and deeply discounted (for good reason), the Studio line, a better product, much appreciated by fans of this brand but still glued or Blake Stitched and, finally, the Tramezza line. For a comprehensive and most entertaining overview of Italian shoes and shoemakers read Dr. Jens P. Becker’s authoratative blog on the subject: http://loomings-jay.blogspot.de/2015/11/italienische-herrenschuhe.html

    History: A word about SALVATORE FERRAGAMO: Born in Naples, Italy, in 1898. He made his first pair of shoes for his sister at the age of 9. His parents were poor farmers and could not buy shoes for his sisters to go to church for their first communion. Salvatore borrowed materials from the village cobbler and made them himself. At age 14 after studying shoemaking in Naples, he opened his first shop with 6 workmen. Yet more amazingly, at the age of 16, he moved to California and opened a shoemaking shop inSanta Barbara! Unsatisfied with the beautiful but uncomfortable shoes of the era, he studied anatomy at the University of Southern California. After some experimentation, he perfected the steel arch support that he inserted into the instep of every shoe. Soon he relocated toHollywood, where for more than 30 years he shod the whole galaxy of film stars from Lillian Gish in the silent era to Marilyn Monroe in more recent times. Greta Garbo once purchased 70 pairs of shoes in one visit to Ferragamo’s shop. His beautiful shoes filled the pages of the world’s top fashion magazines and the firm expanded tremendously into prêt-a-portez with predictable compromises. Nevertheless, in the Ferragamo firm’s “Tramezza Line”, their hand made, limited production, top boutique offering, his successors honour the great tradition of the old master, Salvatore, who is now cobbler to the angels.
